ASo yesterday I baked a cake in a 9" pyrex bowl, I lowered my oven temperature to 315* and put a flower nail in, and baked for about 55 minutes, the inside of the cake turned out fine, but unfortunately the flat part of the cake was hard like a rock. Could I please get some suggestions on how to prevent this from happening again? And I also forgot to mention that I had baked it with a 8" round next to it, would it have been best if I had just baked it by itself? Thank you in advance!:)

That's awesome! I'm gonna be making a pregnant belly soon, I'm really excited:) if you don't mind me asking what size bowl did you use? Also how long did you bake for at what temperature? Thank you:)

You guys really make me realize how old (ancient) that I am !!:roll:

Most of the home made cakes that I saw in my youth were baked in rectangular pyrex glass baking pans,  The same pans that casseroles were baked in.  The baking temperatures were lowered about 25 degrees much less than metal pans, and sometimes a piece of foil was laid over the top to prevent over cooking the top.

Wow I bet it looked really cool! I would love to see what it looked like. I've been wanting to make one for a while so that's how come I did a test run in my pyrex the other day, I ended up making a 3d pig though lol. I'll let you know how mines turn out! Thanks again! :)

Lol I usually bake in my pyrex recs too, but never have I ever in my bowls, I'm just really glad I don't have to buy a ball pan, I already have too many pans taking up my storage space! Lol

That is so cute! I love how you gave the bottom a flowy look, I wanna make mine a descent size as well, I've seen a lot of belly cakes and they were really pretty but so teeny! Lol. Btw how'd you get the baking strips to wrap around the bowl? I couldn't for the life of me,
